and this morning on cnn, the chair of the gun appreciation day suggested slavery wouldn't have occurred if guns had been available to everyone in america at the time. let's listen to this mularkey. >> i think martin luther king would agree with me, if he were alive today, that if african-americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> what a dumb, dumb nut. joy, you've got to respond. this is not a nut but a dumb nut. slaves didn't come to america as citizens, came in shackles, in the bottom of a ship somewhere if they were lucky to be alive when they got here. the idea they would be armed by anyone. he's obviously patternizing here, trying to act like he cares about the fate of black people and some sort of number he was playing here. who would believe this new larky. >> why is it that every time the far right makes an argument that's insane, they jump on the civil rights movement and slavery and try to latch their argument on to the history of african-americans. >> as if they give a d
the florida panhandle is hilarious. whether it is chuck todd or this from cnn because he's putting his hands on it. members of my staff swear putting shapes on the state of florida is all problematic. yes, i get it. i get it less than most people. i do see something in the associated press map. mitt romney won the counties in orange, newt gingrich won the ones in red. do you see that? look closer. they totally saw it. it's a giraffe! best new thing in the world today. you are grounded, staffers. this photo of mitt romney in iowa in october 2007 is the greatest campaign trail photo of modern times. in 2008 the gettings were so good in terms of campaign photos that the famous romney fudge photo even had a close second runner-up with this one, right? remember this one? i still have no idea what was going on in this picture. between our winner and first runner-up, obviously, 2008 will never be surpassed in terms of genius photos from the presidential campaign trail. that doesn't mean we're not looking for contenders in 2012. behold, america, we have a contender. this exists. this exists! and wha
in this debate, new polling shows the country is increasingly divided on this issue. the latest cnn "time" opinion research poll shows 55% americans favor stricter gun laws and 44% oppose them. 60% say it's too easy for people to buy a gun in the u.s., over 60% say stricter laws would not reduce the amount of violence in the country. that's pretty much confusion by the numbers. the public is also split on the cause of gun violence. just 23% say it's due to the availability of weapons. most responded that either parenting or popular culture are to blame. let's talk a bit more on the politics here of gun control. listen, what president obama proposed is sweeping and it's huge. the conversation now is what can actually get passed? give us a sense of what measures go passed? >> very little can get passed in the next couple of years. there's no doubt it's an emotionally charge issue. the polling numbers show that there does seem to be some movement at the public at large. but in congress there's simply is not. particularly among republicans and house republicans specifically. you talk to these
. national treasure. >> i'm getting trashed around here every day this week. >> it's what we used call at cnn cross fire. >> bill, there's snow in the south. >> there was a little snow in the south. not enough for the kids to go sledding. d.c. got robbed. atlanta didn't get anything either. richmond and raleigh. some of that snow barely clipping cape cod this morning. that's about it. you may see snow showers around new york city or philadelphia this morning. that's really about. now, this arctic blast of air coming down from the north, it will settle in over the great lakes this weekend. on sunday, especially getting very cold in areas like detroit, chicago, minnesota will be frigid along with wisconsin. then it's going to sweep into new england by the time we get to tuesday or wednesday. just keep that in mind. it's going to get very cold. coldest air of the season in areas like chicago. in other words, enjoy today. enjoy what's going to happen over saturday. after that we get a lot colder in many spots. as far as the forecast goes, one last mild day today from denver to kansas city. again,
directly to northwestern people. >> let's take a look at a new cnn time orc poll that talks about that stricter gun control laws and what the temperature is. 55% favor districter gun control laws. and then if we look back just a little bit further to "the washington post," abc poll, they talk about armed guards in schools. this is where the dichotomy in school -- the poll shows that 55% support having armed guards in school whereas 52% oppose that. and karen, i want to start with you on this one. because for the people on the left who are proud to say they support second amendment rights, we look at that contrast there where people want to see districter gun control laws, but they also think that there is a legitimate discussion to be had about having armed guards at school. >> we haven't had that discussion. remember the -- thomas -- when you talk about having armed guards, you talk about arming teachers went have four states in the union where teacher are allowed to have concealed carry weapons but they don't have to tell the parents of their students that they have weapons even
the broadcasting arena. we have private stations and cnn and fox and nbc and all of that. they are out there and convey information, but we are not doing what we did during the cold war. our broadcasting board of governors is practically defunct in terms of the capacity to tell a message around the world. they are advocating the ideological arena and we need to get back into it. we have the best values and narrative. most people in the world want to have a good decent live that is supported by a good decent job and raise their families and letting the jihadist narrative fill a void. we need to get in there and do it successfully. >> from ohio. >> madam secretary, let me thank you for your service. i wish you the best in your future endeavors mostly. [ laughter ] i have a couple of questions, but i want to take a moment or two to say a couple of words about chris stevens. many members and staff on our committee had the opportunity to know and work with him. even before he was named our u.s. ambassador to libya. i think all would agree that he was one of the most able diplomats. i had
the groundwork for a run which he was asked about on cnn yesterday. let's listen to what he said. >> is there any reason you wouldn't run? >> there's a whole lot of reasons why i wouldn't run. i haven't made that decision and i don't have to make that decision for awhile. >> so are you ready to run against hillary clinton in 2016? >> i haven't made that judgment and hillary hasn't made that judgment. but i can tell you what. everything that should be done over the next two years that i should be part of would have to be done whether i run or i don't run. if this administration is successful, whoever is running as a democrat is better positioned to win. if we're not successful, whoever runs as a nominee is going to be less likely to win. >> well, brand new poll out today from the washington post and abc news shows how popular hillary clinton is. she's not quite at chris christie's level in jersey but close nationally. 67% say they have a favorable view of her. joe biden is viewed favorably by 48%. he's been in the line of fire. and until today secretary clinton wasn't. looks like biden is making a
. >> well, let's take a look at where the tea party stands among americans. cnn opinion research poll taken this past november shows the tea party has a 50% unfavorable rating. that's double what it was in 2010. meanwhile the tea party's favorable rating has pretty much stayed the same. i think dana makes a great point when he talks about partisan districts. 435 congressional districts in the country and really only 35 of them are in play. well, those that are held by republicans are still going to have this influence in them regardless of whether we refer to them as the tea party types. >> that's exactly right. you know, i call it jerry mandering. i'm fine with that word. what you're seeing is those districts people are only afraid of a challenge from the right. they don't have to fear centrist republicans. then you have the states that are solid red states like georgia, for example. you could have a paul brunn. and iowa will be another one. does steve king somehow emerge to sadly, tragically, somehow take tom harkin's seat? or does someone come out with the nomination because iowa is not
of west virginia went on cnn to talk about bipartisanship yesterday. he ended up taking a totally partisan stance on an assault weapons ban. >> just get a yes or no possibly. an assault weapons stand alone ban. >> a assault weapons ban, on just guns alone will not in the political reality that we have today will not go anywhere. it has to be comprehensive, candy. >> let's have an up or down vote on that. i'm not so sure than. senator manchin is shutting down the debate before it's even started. it looks like congress might not have the courage to act on anything. so today the president talked about his alternatives. >> i'm confident that there are some steps we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. >> and here is the level headed and bipartisan response. representative steve stockman is threatening to impeach the president of the united states if there is any new gun control laws out there. his official website says "come and take it," meaning his guns. senator rand paul made the same threat. >> but one that wants to infringe on the second a
. we're going to run out of time. >> you've got a lot of attention for something you said friday on cnn. when you were asked about holding gun appreciation day the weekend before dr. martin luther king day, let's lnl to what you said. >> i believe that gun appreciation day honors the legacy of dr. king. i think martin luther king would agree with me if we were live today that if african americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> now, first of all, larry, you do realize martin luther king was killed by a gun. and that he preached all of his life against the use of any weapons and preached turn the other cheek. so you do realize what you said was a total anti-thesis of dr. king. >> of course, i do. i know quite a bit. >> so why did you say you think he would support you? >> not only do i standby my statement that martin luther king -- gbut also the entire civil rights movement. we have the winchester rifle should be at a place of honor in every black home. >> no, wait a m
stall that process. here is kansas republican tim huelskamp on cnn earlier tonight. >> near as we can tell it increases taxes on certain americans and it would probably increase spending as well. and there might be a debt ceiling part of that as well. and it doesn't anything about entitlement reform, which is the problem. i think it would probably be the typical washington deal. but i can't vote for something that is not a solution. and, again, on all fronts, though, i do believe it's going to cost american jobs. >> vice president biden began participating in negotiations at the request of senate minority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday, and helped forge a deal on taxes. the proposed deal worked out earlier today is said to raise $600 billion in revenue over the next decade through new tax increases on the wealthiest americans. the bush era tax rates would be extended for all single americans, with income below $400,000, and couples with income below $450,000. all income above those levels would be taxed at a clinton era top tax rate of 39.6%. and capital gains taxes above those amou
, but one thing that's gotten a lot of attention is something that you said yesterday on cnn. i want to play that for everybody. >> i think martin luther king would agree with me if he were alive today that if african-americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> there are people that are very heated about that comment. >> true. >> is there any -- the substance behind that, the american civil war, we know that the north defeated the south mainly because of african-american enlistment. do you want to rephrase what you were trying to say there or try to clarify the point you were trying to make. >> i'll tell you what. i'll give you a promo here, too. i'm going to be on the reverend al sharpton show on monday and i'll address that then. you know, that was an incomplete thought. i had three or four more points that were going follow on to that and quite frankly i didn't have time before we got cut off, but i'm going to fully address it on monday. >> all right. so you will meet with
, case closed. and this morning on cnn the chairman or chair of the gun appreciation day suggested slavery wouldn't have occurred if guns had been available to everyone in america at the time. let's listen to this malarkey. >> i think martin luther king would agree with me if he were alive today that if african-americans had been given the right to keep and bear arms from day one of the country's founding, perhaps slavery might not have been a chapter in our history. >> what a dumb, dumb nut. joy, you got to start on this. this is not only a nut but a dumb nut. slaves didn't come to america as citizens. they came in shackles -- >> as property. >> in the bottom of a ship if they're lucky to be alive if they got here. the idea they would be armed by anyone -- you take it on. he's obviously patronizing, trying to act like he cares about the fate of black people. who would believe this malarkey? >> and, chris, why is it every time the far right decides to make an argument that is insane, they jump on the civil rights movement or slavery and try to latch their argument onto the history
to the extreme end of the pro-gun side. alex jones talking to cnn's piers morgan. >> hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. castro took the guns. chavez took the guns. i'm here to tell you. 1776 with commence again if you try to take our firearms! >> performance art. after that how long would it take for the right to evoke adolph hitler? not very. after suggested executive action could be taken in the issue, here's how the drudge report reacted. quote, white house threatens executive orders on guns. there the pictures are obama with hitler and stalin. so alex jones is not as far from the right wing mainstream on guns you assumed or hoped. >>> next, add this one to the list of why republicans missed the whole election. it turns out we're in for this fight again. >> the amendment i bring to the floor tonight would deny any and all funding to planned parenthood and its affiliates for the rest of the fiscal year. >> that was mike pence leading the charge in 2011 to defund planned parenthood. it did not stop with his exit from congress. enter marsha blackburn. she's on the show a lot. and her kic
what gun control advocates are up against, look at what happened on cnn last night. what a horror show. >> and i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. doesn't matter how many lemmings you get on the street begging for them to have their guns taken. we will not relinquish them. do you understand? >> number one reason we need background checks. that kind of guy. keep him away from weapons. he's a radio talk show host and you heard him. alex jones, he doesn't want guns for hunting or personal protection. he wants guns to fight the government with. that's what he said last night. we'll get into that. the obama administration finally has the wind at its back on the issue of gun control. we know what the opposition looks like. it's that guy. >>> red storm rising. the crisis in the republican party. some republicans resent the hostile takeover by the tea party. some republicans in the tea party is fighting with itself. we have one of the combatants joining us, dick armey. >>> and the latest outrage involving penn state. the governor of pennsylvania has
here waiting in the legal route. >> real quickly let's show everybody the federal government new cnn/orc poll. the question being should the federal government develop a plan for undocumented immigrants to become legal residents? 53% say yes. then we have this. this is really interesting, victoria. because this bipartisan group of senators coming out today almost stealing the thunder from the president's first big policy speech coming tomorrow in las vegas. there is the immigration 8 right there. marco rubio a part of that immigration 8. and he wrote a las vegas review op-ed saying my hope is president obama will use his voice and influence to further this approach. however, if what he offers is a process for the undocumented that is more lenient, faster and unfair to those waiting to come legally, it won't bode well for reform. didn't use the word amnesty but that's what he's talking about. >> you know what other word he didn't use, thomas? illegal. so he intended to talk about illegal immigrants, illegal immigration. and we've seen a change in the rhetoric of how marco rubio is tal
the stupid party. maybe getting rid of that is part of it. who knows. maybe cnn will pick her up. >>> lef it to our friends on the right to find new conspiracies. first they question whether hillary clinton had a concussion. new they want to know whether he was pushed. sickos. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. to the best vacation spot on earth.

and the hard news people. by the way, they have more hard news people than msnbc, cnn, and everybody else -- >> sorry, ron, ron, ron, i accept your analysis on benghazi. don't forget also we wouldn't have had the invented simultaneous video feed that they claimed on fox news was occurring and that people in the white house were ignoring. so let's not be entirely disingenuous. >> we don't know because no one in the media will ask the president and hillary clinton -- >> the press spokesman has been asked and they have all said there was no such thing. n nia-malika -- >> where was the president during benghazi? >> let other people contribute. there have been momentous changes going on lately at fox news, especially the departure of reality tv personality sarah palin. let's hear what conservative intellectual david frum says about this. >> who says he's conservative? >> in tandem with the fact that glenn beck is taken off. as they have backed away from hip and other characters -- the whole network is an exercise in going too far but as they retreated from those who went farthest, i think this
and skepticism about his willingness to use force. in an interview with cnn, vice president biden argued that hagel is no dove. >> the idea of getting engaged in a ground war, in a country that's in transition is not a precipitation any military man would suggest. >> in many ways, obama's pick of hagel, who he forged a relationship with in the senate, then traveled with to afghanistan and iraq in july of 2008, along with cia nominee john brennan and incoming secretary of state john kerry represent a shift in the way the u.s. wages war and the president's attempts to put an imprint on u.s. foreign policy. today, hagel will have his first chance to publicly respond to his critics, in a 112-page questionnaire requested by the committee, hagel begins to do that on iran and israel. this is what he said in the questionnaire, and he'll be questioned about this today. on the questionnaire, i am committed to considering all options to counter iran and its aggression and to maintain u.s. support for missile defense systems in israel. translation, he's for unilateral military action if necessary ag
. it took a cnn reporter looking through the consulate to find chris stevens' last warning. when were you made aware of that cable? when were you made aware of the attack on the british ambassador and the assassination attempts and closing of the consulate there? what actions were taken? what was the president's activities during that seven-hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. with all of these warnings, all of these things took place, we didn't have a single department of defense asset apparently available to come to the rescue. i cat gorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask the survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on, the american people deserve to know answers. and they certainly don't deserve false answers. and the answers that were given the american people on september 15t
chuck todd. and jessica yellin and brianna keel er are from cnn and joining them on the front row is julia pace. i want to come back to the white house to talk about this question, because if women in the room matter and we are all critiquing the president's picture, the fact is that the room is full of a lot of guys, too. >> we were on the campaign trail together, nia, and i and there were a lot of women in the campaign bus, and it was not boys on the bus anymore. this is a thrill to the question, because there were a lot of young women that were campaign embeds for the networks and carrying the cameras and getting the shots and usually very young and working harder than anyone else. almost, and i would say a majority of them are women, right? but what i worry about is that they are not going to make it up through, and that is what we have to test or check in the next ten years, did they make it up to the highest ranks? because that is where you did the duty there, and you got the payoff then into big jobs, and i want to make sure that they do get there, but what i fear is that w
. we also did a poll with cnn. and it's interesting that the american public is not mobilized around this issue. the majority of americans actually agree with the nra about putting armed guards in schools. only 39% of americans think that the prevalence of guns is the cause of gun violence in schools. only something like 29% think greater gun control will be a solution for that. the ideological battle which the president has talked about is not by any means won at all. and, in fact, the gun control advocates have lost ground over the last 10, 15, 20 years. and that's the reality of it. >> and we have been talking about a holistic approach that needs to be taken. and you look at the specifics, whether you talk about assault weapon bans or registration or whether you talk about background checks. those numbers have gone up a great deal. >> yes, yes. and it's funny, because you see a divide now. because in terms of background checks and all of that, they are very high. they're unanimous. more than 50% of gun owners approve of that as well. but the notion that there is a causal relations
